A Good Grief helps raise money for families who have lost children

MURRAY -- A concert in Murray was held earlier this week to honor families who have lost children unexpectedly and to help raise money for a Utah-based organization that was inspired by a 2008 tragedy.

A Good Grief was founded by Victor and Molly Jackson who lost their daughter Lucy in a 2008 accident. They say the generosity extended to them helped to pay for a headstone for Lucy, sparking an idea.

Donations are gathered online and at fundraisers to help pay for headstones for families who have lost children unexpectedly. The organization also helps to connect and inspire those who have suffered a loss.

"The hope of tonight, in addition to raising money, is that it will be uplifting and serve as a reminder to all of us that no matter what our problems and sorrows, there's still so much good in the world," said Victor Jackson.
